Six cyber safety discussion starters for parents

Post by Olympicana_Reloaded on Tue 19 Mar - 19:40

1. DO NOT give out personal details, photographs, or any other information that could be used to identify you, such as your family, where you live or the school you go to.

2. DO NOT take other people at face value - they may not be what they seem.

3. NEVER arrange to meet someone you've only ever previously met on the internet without first telling your parents, getting their permission and taking a responsible adult with you.

4. ALWAYS stay in the public areas of chat where there are other people around. Children should only use chat services specifically targeted at their own age range which have adequate levels of care and protection.

5. DO NOT open an attachment or downloaded files unless you know and trust the person who has sent it.

6. NEVER respond directly to anything you find disturbing - save or print it, log off, and tell an adult.
